Badminton is a sport where speed is primordial. Regardless of the manifestation of speed, whether it is reaction speed, movement speed, decision speed, repetition speed, or performance speed, they are all extremely important in badminton. Speed is an innate psycho-motor skill that one develops through exercise over the course of one's lifetime. Because selection in badminton is done at early ages (5-6 years old), it is very important for the children with this psycho-motor skill to be identified. A child with this psycho-motor skill will have good movement in the court and implicitly better strokes, because they will position themselves correctly and quickly in the court.
